The summer transfer window opens these doors this Sunday 1um January 2023. For the occasion, the Figaro sports department gives you its eleven players whose contracts are about to expire.

The goalkeeper

Our choice fell to the goalkeeper David of Gaea (32 years old). Despite Manchester United’s mixed results, the Spanish goalkeeper generally had a strong first half of the season, making magnificent and decisive saves and keeping five clean sheets in fourteen Premier League games. His contract provides for an optional extra year but Erik ten Hag does not necessarily want to keep him. He could thus change the air this summer. If that were to be the case, there is no doubt that there will be no shortage of suitors.

The defenders

Our rearguard has four elements. In the axis, we have opted for a hinge made up ofEvan Ndicka (23 years old) e Milan Skriniar (27 years old). Sparkling with Eintracht Frankfurt for several seasons, the Frenchman is not expected to last forever in the Bundesliga. He would be followed by several big European clubs and by the British press – the Daily Express – the announcement also very close to Arsenal. The Slovak, for his part, would still be in the Paris bulletins SG who could go on the offensive at the beginning of the year to secure his services, either this winter for a tidy sum, or this summer. However, Inter would not part with their captain and should take action to extend it.

On the left side of defense we selected Raphael Guerreiro (29 years old). The Portuguese will hardly continue his adventure at Borussia Dortmund once his contract has expired. And SL Benfica would consider him to replace Alex Grimaldo who should leave the Eagles this summer, according to information from journalist Rudy Galetti. On the right we find a player of FC Barcelona: Sergius Robert (30 years). Somewhat struggling in Catalonia, the Spaniard is not certain he will be offered a new extension by the end of the 2022-2023 financial year and may now be looking for a base for next season.

He announces himself close to Barcelona with which he would like, second Sport , signs a pre-contract in January. The 2018 World Champion is accompanied by two quality torch bearers: Luca Modric (37 years old) e Ilkay Gundogan (32 years old). The Croatian, still as good with Real Madrid as he is with Croatia despite the weight of the years, could very well extend his contract with the White House once again.
